[SPORTS] LAKERS STAR KOBE BRYANT HAS TORN LIGAMENT IN WRIST


Ah when it rains it pours. Word just came from the Lakers that all-star guard, Kobe Bryant, suffered a torn ligament in the preseason game vs the Clippers. The future hall of famer is listed as day to day.

I’ll tell ya, as a Laker fan, it just seems that the hill is getting steeper and steeper for this seasons Laker team. With failed Chris Paul trade, to the departure of Lamar Odom, and the uncertainty of Pau & Drew even being on the team all season (being that the Lakers still hope to land Dwight Howard). It makes it hard to understand what Jim Buss is doing. Nonetheless, I’m a Lakers fan for life, so at the end of the day you have to take the good with the bad. For anyone who has ever had a torn ligament anywhere, you know there is no true time table for healing…I tore a ligament in my finger, and after about 3weeks it was healed…a wrist..ah..may take longer. So that’s 5 games without Bynum from the beginning, and now Kobe..this is going to be crazy! Right now, it’s looking bad.

[SPORTS] LAKERS/ROCKETS/HORNETS REVISE TRADE INVOLVING CHRIS PAUL


Chris Paul could become a Laker this weekend. After Commissioner Stern vetoed the first trade, which would have sent Pau Gasol to the Rockets, Lamar Odom to the Hornets, along with Rockets Luis Scola, Kevin Martin, & Goran Dragic. Now I’m seeing that the Celtics have agreed to trade Jermaine Oneal to the Hornets (which he would actually become a Laker) to become a part of a package that the Lakers would send to Orlando in hopes of landing the 3 time Defensive Player of the year. I’m not sure what the Celtics would get back in return for him (tacos..lol). But seriously, I just want this deal to be done, because Lamar may not decide to recover from this, and I feel bad for Pau, but we all know this is part of the game.

The bottom line is this, Dwight Howard was pushing for a trade to New Jersey because the NBA nixed the Chris Paul trade. So it’s my belief that when he seen that, playing with Deron become his 2nd choice of pg’s to play with. But now that the trade is still possible, he got permission from Orlando to talk with the Lakers, (also the Mavs, & Nets), so we have to see what happens. But the truth is, I really don’t believe the Mavs have a true chance if they have to give up Jason Kidd, because Howard wants to play with an all-star caliber guard. Someone that can get him the ball in his comfortable spots. Chris Paul is definitely the one he would want to play with.

The Mavericks will sign Vince Carter to a 1yr deal, so I wonder will the Lakers take a look at Rip Hamilton, just to add depth to the roster? Because once the trades go down (if they go down) the bench will have to be revamped. Ah no sleep till the deal is done.

JIM BUSS IS FINALLY “OPEN” TO TRADING ANDREW BYNUM

I guess Jim Buss finally woke up, and understood the dynamics of the words: BYNUM IS UNTOUCHABLE. What made that happen? Orlando’s Otis Smith stated that he is open to hearing all offers for it’s all-star center…and now Mitch Kupchack has the right piece to throw there way. Honestly I believe that Bynum has had all the major surgery he will require for the rest of his career, and you cannot deny his talent, or work ethic..except for waiting to get surgery too late last season, but hey I chalk that up to immaturity, versus work ethic.

But seriously what does this mean for the Lakers? It’s the possibility of bringing Kobe Bryant together with another version of “Superman”..but this one actually respects him and wants to play with him. Like Kobe who has modeled so much of his game after his idol, Michael Jordan, with the rings to match…Dwight Howard (even if he never says it) is ready to do the same thing…and acquire the bling to match. I believe he wants to do it while he knows Kobe still has that fire in his belly to get it done. Read the rest of this entry »
